All I want for Christmas is…

Let’s be realistic…we are in the middle of a deep recession, and thinking about gifts can cause tremendous anxiety. But that doesn’t mean we can’t dream a little…

 

From high-end to the “OK, I can do this” end – check out my picks!

 

Susanna and I at Bulgari

 

My friend Susanna and I took a stroll through the Beverly hills Bulgari store during a recent event that celebrated Italian Cinema. We looked at every single shiny jewel while emitting sighs and ooohs.  We pretended that we could actually go ahead and use a black amex to fulfill our frivolous desires…and then SNAP! We were back on Rodeo Drive, headed to our cars and talking about our daily issues…including bills!

Well, Bulgari is Bulgari, the Roman titan, but you’ll see that one day Bulgari will be contacting ME to give me free jewelry and I’ll be like… huh? Who are you?

 

This said, apart from jewelry there are other items on my gift list that I find extremely interesting.

Christopher Kane’s jelly clutches just bring you back to childhood… Remember those puffy stickers or liquid-filled plastic toys that were strangely addictive ? All with bubbles of color trapped in oil? I just want to grab this and stick colorful pens and erasers in it and show it off at school!

Pamela Love has a lot for me but this…oh yeah, this resin tribal spike cuff for $195 just has me hypnotized. It reminds me of snowflakes falling on my window as I get kissed goodnight.
